Dedicated to an enshrined 16th-century samurai, Takeda Shrine offers blessings to samurai warriors who gather here for the annual samurai parade. With some 1,000 cherry blossom trees, the shrine features a large "kagure," a Shinto theatrical dance outlet featuring occasional performances, and a carp pond where you can feed the fish. You can also spot black-crowned night herons in the garden. A small museum inside the shrine features Takeda Shingen’s weapons, armor, colorful battle standards, and other personal belongings. You can also see Kamakura-period sword, listed as a national treasure, on display at the shrine, which sits eight minutes from Kofu station by bus or taxi.

  • And just a few minutes away by car from Kofu station, as highlights of the Kofu city, along with the Museum of art, is a popular place. In the season of cherry blossoms in the cherry bloom is beautiful. Tourist season otherwise relatively empty.

  • Parking is available. However you must not width enough to watch out. There was charm, such as road safety. You can go around look so clean so quickly. However, the "treasure house" is not to be missed.

  • lots of cherry trees along day from Kofu station. its a good 30 min walk up the hill but its really nice in spring. there is a nice view from the gate downhill (a cherry tree avenue) and across the city.
  • Beautiful shrine and surrounding area. Nice to walk around and take lots of photos!
  • Well kept, ample spaces to walk around, beautiful cherry trees.
  • 100 next meijo Takeda's Studio. Near the souvenir shops and vibrant feel. Former Samurai and lives in modern I think... is amazing. Cool nokyo-sho book. 100 meijo stamps are managed here.

  • Is about 500 years ago, in this area to ensure he was being enshrined. And think of the mountains of this Kai was he looking at absolutely and deeply. It is a shrine to enshrine the hero Takeda Shingen, the shrine itself was very nice. Got the impression is visited during the week, many of you visit the revered as the hometown pride.
